Painted Antique Desk With Lots of Carved Details


I recently finished a painted project involving an antique desk that had seen better times. I refinished the top and gave the drawers and body a coat of paint, then did some special painting on the detailed area and hardware. What do you think of the end result? Did it pass or fail? To see the complete transformation, visit my blog post by clicking the link at the bottom of the post.
